About this Item

2002 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

Domaine Dujac was established in 1967 by Jacques Seysses when he purchased Domaine Marcel Graillet, a poor estate of only 4.5 hectares, and renamed it Domaine du Jacques. Overtime, the name evolved into Domaine Dujac – a playful moniker. Today, they hold around 14.5 hectares and cultivate 18.5 hectares in total. Buying parcels as they became available, the domaine expanded over the years and now owns some of the most exceptional holdings, including the Grands Crus of Echézeaux, Bonnes-Mares, Clos Saint Denis, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Charmes-Chambertin and Clos de la Roche. Aiming for elegance, finesse and complexity, the quality of their seven Grands Crus is a testament to the domaine being one of the Burgundy’s leading producers.

Critics Ratings

‘There is some secondary development in evidence on the ultra-spicy aromas of dried rose petal, violet and various red berry aromas. The rich, intense and beautifully delineated medium-bodied flavors possess a velvety mouth feel while displaying ample minerality on the bright and lingering finish where the only nit is a trace of acid tang.’ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 94/100 (Nov 2017)

‘The 2002 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is one of the finest releases of the decade. It immediately seduces with its cornucopia of red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas, scents of wilted rose petal and a light ferrous note. This is supremely well focused. The medium-bodied, beautifully proportioned palate delivers gentle grip, fine depth and filigreed tannins. There is a slight pepperiness from the whole-bunch addition toward the finish, which feels harmonious and poised. As the wine opens in the glass, it seems to gain weight and substance, turning almost “punchy” on the finish. Superb.’ - Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100 (Mar 2020)
